Characteristics of L'Alleu Vinyes Velles
L'Alleu Vinyes Velles is a blend of the varieties Garnacha Tinta and Cariñena. The grapes originate from very old vines, 40 to 80 years old. Planted in calcareous-clay and fine slate soils, highly representative of the area.
For its production each varietal is vinified separately. For each varietal, the grapes are fermented and macerated for a period of 20-30 days.
After this process, L'Alleu Vinyes Velles is aged for 10 months in French oak barrels.
